Abraham (ET205)

My Mrs. Kayla,
How are you doing? Peace be with you. How is everything? I am writing you this letter with a fear that this could be my last letter for you. Dear Kayla, if there is a person I do not want to lose, it is you. I get your letters and your complements are very important to me. They changed my life. I really like reading your letters more than anything. I am very sure that I would be sad if you stopped writing me. I am so sorry about what happened to your husband. But do not worry. God is always good and you cling to Him. Read Isaiah 40:27-31. Dear Kayla, it has been a few days since we celebrated the Ethiopian new year. In our calendar its 2003 now.

I love you. With your support, I have been provided with everything I need. God bless you. I graduated in "ICT" and I will be leaving Compassion soon. I am going to miss your letters. God bless you. I will pray for you. Bye.

Pray for me that I would be a solution to many peoples' problems.

Hello. I'm Mr. Pakpum, the TH-991 child worker, writing the letter on behalf of No-ca, as she can't write by herself. No-ca has already received your letter. She looks so happy. She's like to thank you very much. She'd like to know you more. She told that there are 4 members in her family, including herself. THere are her parents and her elder sister. However her elder sister has already got married and she doesn't stay in the same house as No-ca. No-ca has a pet, which is a cat. When she grows up, she wants to be a teacher, because she is talkative. No-ca likes to draw pictures and play in the water and swim. Her village is near a river. She therefore likes to play in the water and catch fish. Her parents are agriculturists and employees. No-ca would like to ask you what dream you want to get most and what activities you do on holiday. No-ca would like to thank you very much again. She likes to read your letters so much.
